Diane Levin introduced her readers to a great video over at the ej4 Learning Center some time ago but I just got around to watching it today. 

In the course of this short video, you'll see every bad boss you've ever had as well as (grit your teeth but bear it!) every bad boss behavior you've ever been guilty of.

A must-see:  Impedership Versus Leadership

What does this have to do with negotiation?  First off, you'll find yourself negotiating salary increases a lot less often if you have a happy workforce.    

Thanks Diane!!
